Pleasure Products B2B Publication Celebrates Milestone with New Award Categories!

StorErotica Magazine announces pre-nominations are now open for the 10th Annual StorErotica Awards. Held Monday, July 18, the SE Awards recognize excellence in the adult retail community, honoring the best of the best in the retail storefront, distributing, and manufacturing levels of health and sexuality products.

“From our first StorErotica Awards Show 10 years ago, at one of the largest adult nightclubs in the country — Sapphire in Las Vegas — to our new home at the ANME Founders Show, it’s always been our pleasure to honor the pleasure products industry,” says StorErotica PR Manager Kristofer Kay. “We’re very grateful to ANME Director Valerie Jones, her team and, of course, the Founders, for giving StorErotica such a grand stage to present our awards and to honor the best that our industry has to offer.”


The 20 categories honored this year for the 2016 StorErotica Awards include the new categories “Brand Ambassador of the Year,” “New Product of the Year (International),” “Luxury Line of the Year,” “LGBT Company of the Year,” “Adult Game / Gag Gift of the Year,” “BDSM Product of the Year,” “Retailer Favorite of the Year,” and more.

“Each year, we joke about being the fastest awards show in the industry,” adds Kay. “That’s been our blessing and our curse, really, but being that this is our tenth year, we felt like expanding the ceremony to emulate the dynamic growth of our industry. The world of erotic retail is constantly evolving to adapt to new clientele, and our awards will always strive to match this evolution. StorErotica is honored to distinguish those professionals and brands which contribute to the overall vitality of the adult retail community.”

Professionals from throughout the industry are invited to visit the StorErotica Awards site, to enter their recommendations before the June 1 deadline. To enter pre-nominations, visit

Winners will be announced at the industry gala during the summertime ANME Founders Show in Burbank, California.
